It's a wild and blustery day here on the coast of Devon. Actually the first day of Summer but feels like the kind of windy Winters day back home that would see us snuggling in front of the fire.
Marco braved the elements to head out for a kitesurfing session and was almost blown off to the Caribbean ( I think that's what might be across the other side of this vast ocean!) He managed to navigate safely back to shore and is currently doing his yoga stretches on the floor in front of me before we head across to our "local" for a meal and an ale.
I stayed inside mostly, working on an upcoming article and tutorial for Cloth Paper Scissors. Trying to capture the essence and impressions of this new and beautiful landscape....mixing more muted colours, open to new discoveries.
The image above is how the piece actually looks right now and the image below is with a filter overlayed, more like where I should really be pushing it to, if I want to convey what's outside the window right now!
So hard though! I'm such a colour girl! Longing already for lush Mediterranean scenes in shades of tangerine and turquoise after only a day or two of wet, grey surrounds.
Speaking of incredible food our first night here we were treated to a gastronomic feast for the senses when Noel and Nora invited us, as their guests to his highly renowned restaurant NC@ex34 in nearby Woolacombe. More on that experience later but here's a little glimpse of the 8 course degustation menu we enjoyed with paired wines, just to get your mouth watering!
Lots of love Tracy xo❤️❤️❤️
